India v Bangladesh Odds: 1st T20i Odds and Betting Preview
It’s been an interesting build up this tour to say the least and for a time, we weren’t even sure that Bangladesh were even coming to India. Thankfully, the threatened players’ strike was called off but in the aftermath, the tourists lost their best player. With Shakib Al Hasan banned for the next 12 months, the visitors look depleted as they prepare for the first of three T20s. That situation is reflected in the India v Bangladesh odds.
What are the India v Bangladesh odds?
The first match in this series takes place in Delhi on Sunday November 3rd. The best cricket betting odds from our recommended bookmakers are the 1.12 quoted by Bet365. We’re used to seeing India installed as short favourites, but can any of us remember their win price dipping that low? If you’re thinking of taking a Satta on Bangladesh, those odds slip to 6.00.
It should be remembered that Virat Kohli has been rested for this series. But India should still have more than enough to get over the line. Bangladesh are fighters, but without their talisman, they’re going to struggle here.
Match Odds Summary: India 1.12 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Bangladesh 6.00.
What are the top batsman odds for India v Bangladesh?
With Kohli taking a well-earned rest, Rohit Sharma fills in as captain. The stand-in skipper is favourite to top score for his side on Sunday. Rohit can be picked up at 3.60 with Betway and he’s followed by Shikhar Dhawan at 4.33.
KL Rahul is available at 4.50, before the middle order becomes tightly bunched. Rishabh Pant is listed at 6.00, while Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson are both at 6.50. Your winner should come from that list of names. But as an outside Satta, Krunal Pandya at 15.00 might just be tempting.
Without Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh’s version of the top batsman market becomes harder to pick. Things start off with favourite Mushfiqur Rahim at 4.33, and he’s followed by Liton Das at 4.50. Soumya Sarkar may offer some value at 5.00, while other options for the visitors include Mohammad Naim at 5.50, Mohammad Mithun at 6.00, and Mahmudullah at 7.00.
There might just be some better value in the Bangladesh market, but picking a winner is a tougher call. For that reason, we’ll stay with India and look for Shikhar Dhawan to make the biggest contribution.
Rohit is in stunning form, but we’ve already picked a favourite in the result market. Dhawan is edging back to his best and we’re aiming for a nice profit at that 4.33 price.
Top Batsman Odds Summary: India: Rohit Sharma 3.60, Dhawan 4.33 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Rahul 4.50, Pant 6.00, Iyer 6.50, Samson 6.50, Krunal Pandya 15.00.
Bangladesh: Mushfiqur 4.33, Das 4.50, Sarkar 5.00, Naim 5.50, Mithun 6.00, Mahmudullah 7.00.
What are the total match sixes odds for India v Bangladesh?
When you have a game where the result market is so one-sided, it can be difficult to find any value among the prop bets. We could opt for India’s top bowler market, but we’ve not nailed a string of winners there. While we did have some success in the Man of the Match betting recently, we’ll look for an either / or pick as our final Satta.
We don’t think this will be a high-scoring game, and if Bangladesh take first knock then it might just be over very quickly. With that in mind, you can find odds of 2.00 for Under 10.5 Sixes and that looks a decent option. That is compared to their price of 1.72 for those who want to go over that line.
Shock results can still come through in the shortest form of the game, but we’re not expecting any upsets when India and Bangladesh take to the field in Delhi.
Total Match Sixes Odds Summary: Under 10.5: 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Over 10.5: 1.72.
